A quick hello

I "stopped by" to post two puppies in the "Chows needing a home" section and thought I would say a quick hi as well. I'm not sure how many will remember me, it's been a very long time since I've been on the board. It's been a very busy few years. Fiona is still doing great. I have TLC Chows friended...

Re: dont know what you think chow x corgi

I only get a chance to read through the post every once in a while, but this topic caught my attention. This is what an adult chorgi (chow x corgi) looks like: http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w181/aultal/Pets/Picturestofile010.jpg http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w181/aultal/Pets/Picturestofile...

Re: Can you/would you take your chows to work?

I work for the State of Ohio, I think my only chance of ever having a dog at work would be to find a new job. Liability issues alone would prevent any live animal in the building, but someday, hopefully I can. My current office now would be the perfect situation, there are only 8 employees, we all h...

Re: two spaded females

My families two female chows live in harmony and until January, there was also a female collie in the mix. I have never seen a cross word pass between any of them except for a two week period years ago when my collie was on arthritis medication that did not agree with her. They are not best buddies,...

Can you/would you take your chows to work?

USAToday had an article today showing that more and more companies where allowing dog owners (and in one instance cat/small critter owners) to bring their pets with them to work. I would love to take Fiona to work with me, I think she would love it. I think Tess would be very happy and content to go...

If someone yelled at Fiona, they would never be able to touch her again, that's just how she is. Loud voice cause her to shut down, it would take forever to build up trust with her again. Squ...

Re: Has anyone seen this Video? Lola, The blind Puppy

The video was taking forever to load so I will have to watch it later (attention span of a 3 year old), but I didn't realize Lola was pulled from an LA shelter. She is a very lucky chow to find such angles to look after her.

Re: Cllicker Training for Chows?

My chow Tess cannot have the clicker anywhere near her. The only time she has ever heard it, it took half an hour to get her to come back in the house and I got looks from her for two days that made me think I should sleep with one eye open. My other chow Fiona does great with clicker training. So w...

Tess developed two white spots around her mouth about two years ago, the coloring has never gone any further and she's about ten. With Maxwell being a mix though, he may start greying at a much younger age. My collie Tacia started greying shortly after I found her at about six years old and had a ve...

Twizzlers were my collie Tacia's favorite treat ever. My mom use to keep them in a glass cookie jar in our kitchen.
